best liquidvapour modelling
hi everybody
just want to know some suggestions about twophase modelling (liquidvapour), what methods are the simpliest and very exact? thanks for any help zane 
Re: best liquidvapour modelling
Answer is problem dependent. State your problem and then one can answer...

Hello,
I'm working with twophase flow (liquidvapour). could you please explain what do you mean by simplest and very exact. regards Dia 
Re: best liquidvapour modelling
Well the situation is like this. I believe all the comercial program and codes are limited to some general problems in CFD. In my case special time dependent boundary conditions are used. I am used to do all the code by myself, but to this time I simulated only one phase (liquid phase). I have solavof and nasa3d source codes, but to set my boundary conditions into the codes and adjust the code is far two complicated. I rather discretised equations and programming all by myself. So is there any good books or papers where equations for liquidvapour phase are described in discretised form (all terms included). I found Fletcher's CFD book for liquid phase very easy to read, where all terms are precisesly described. I wrote From that form it is not hard to write a program to solve equations. Any suggestions? Thanks. Zane

Why don't you solve for single pressure model.

Re: best liquidvapour modelling
For multiphase modelling you can go several ways depending on the degree of complexity you want.
ie. 1) homogeneous model 2) 6 equation model 3) 1 fluid model Interface tracking models use a one fluid formulation. Looking at this the NS equations are the same as in a one fluid, except you will want surface tension and the second part of the viscous term. The method to solve this equation is typically done using a projection method however I am seeing more and more people using Simple schemes.  Good books... 1)Ferziger and Peric: (Computational Methods for Fluid Dynamics) 2)Patankar: Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow.  Did you want mass transfer in the model as well? This is the fun part :)
